In 1995 Trevor and Lyn Mann decided it was time for a sea change, relocating to Margaret River in pursuit of an adventure in viticulture. With their experience limited to sampling plenty of the product, but armed with a vision and loads of self-belief, they dived straight into their new journey and planted 10,000 young vines of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The first harvest in 1999 was a momentous occasion.
The vineyard follows biological farming principles and the wines are 100% estate grown and made. The team believe it’s the small things that make the big difference and make their wines extra special. These days daughter Bronnley Cahill is in the winemaking driver’s seat.
Taking the best of the old world and new world approaches to winemaking, Brookwood Estate makes wines with minimal intervention to capture the essence of their vineyard. The range includes sweet through to dry wines sparkling.
Relaxed, fun and informative tastings are hosted in the wrought iron and wood cellar door daily from 11am to 4.30pm. A selection of gourmet produce including dukkah and local extra virgin olive oil is available for tasting as well. Group bookings can be arranged in advance, starting from $5 per guest.
The winery café/restaurant is a hidden gem in the region, serving a delicious and generous contemporary Australian menu to pair with the Brookwood Estate Wines. Relax on the verandah and take in sweeping vineyard views while you dine, open 11am to 3pm. (It’s enclosed and cosy in winter.)
